In the middle of everything I started to see
You said you were a beekeeper, but I heard no bees
I asked you where do you get your honey
You said darling I'm a beekeeper, I'm up to my knees.

Oh I'm a lonely sailor on a sinking boat
Sometimes I think I'm a mermaid but I never float
You asked me why I didn't send you a note
I threw my pen and ink overboard with what I wrote.

Oh, oh, just like a dove on a bay riverside with a little black crow.
Wanna know all of the ribs on your cage.
Tell you that a part of me lives in you, and I'm a godd*** fool
Make your move or get out of the game.

At the end of the tunnel I can see the light
I promised you I wouldn't go down without a fight
I know it won't always be black and white
'Cause there are demons and things that go bump in the night.

So swallow your bitter pill
You said you were a thrill seeker but what's your thrill?
It's the way you walk, it's the way you stand still
And the way that you look at me and always will.

Hey, today's the day, are you ready to fall, are you ready to jump
From a plane with a stranger on your back
High in the sky, you look back and where am I at - I'm a man in disguise
Tongue-tied you started to crack

Started to crack and the sky's turning black
And I'm stuck in you like a thumbtack
Between my legs and my arms you're alarmed
And I won't hurt you - just want to charm you.

Wanna be there, and I wanna be there
I won't let you go
A beekeeper a thrill seeker
Hit the ground running,"Told you so..."
